it for what it is, a terrorist attack. they see barack obama and new york city the same day as netanyahu and on the same day, instead guess on a daily talk show. sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on cars in finland or wind mills in china? was it a good idea to borrow all of this money from countries like clina? here's the problem, they got caught turning medicare into a piggy bank for obamacare. >> sean: when i watched the debate a second time, charles, really paying attention and listening more deeply and not as distracted by biden, i realized, i thought paul ryan did a really good job. >> that's what i was trying to say last night, firead a transcript, i think you would conclude it was a draw. each side made their points. there was no way to refute all the other points. i thought the moderator was extremely intrusive. i would like when the moderator says, we have to move on, for one of the candidates to say, why the hell do we have to move on? we are in the middle of a very important discussion. we are going to
it grew slower than the year before. all president obama has offered as more of the same. we have a very big choice to make. that choice is clear. do we want more stagnation that fosters dependency or do we want a dynamic, growing economy that creates opportunity and creates jobs? [cheers and applause] in a nutshell, we need leadership. [cheers] look at the guy over my shoulder right here. if you look at this man's life story, one word comes to mind. leader. this is a man who turned around the olympics, who turned around struggling businesses, and by the way, being successful in business, that is a good thing. there is nothing wrong with that. we want more people to be successful. we want more people to have prosperity, to have jobs, to have higher take-home pay. we want people to grow. in a jobs crisis, wouldn't it be nice to have a job-creator in the white house? this is a man who has proven to get things done. when he was governor of massachusetts, he cut taxes 19 times, he balance the budget without raising taxes. unemployment went down, household income went up. this is a man that k
the senate homeland security committee has said it will do the same. the senate committee said it wants to know what happened and why and why the obama administration's, quote, initial public assessment of this attack was subsequently proven inaccurate. jamie. >> molly, questions just about everybody wants answered. thank you so much. greg. >> president obama and his republican challenger mitt romney are focusing squarely on the next debate. the candidates getting ready for tuesday's town hall debate in new york while gov. romney is preparing for the second phase off he is telling voters in the battleground state of ohio and across the country that support for him is surging. chief political correspondent karl cameron is live in portssmith, ohio. >> we are just outside where he will have a big rally in moments. earlier today he did a little debate prep while his running mate paul ryan was on the campaign trail at youngstown, ohio. he took to task the president's decision to postpone a decision whether or not china is manipulating its currency and breaking free trade. we are bouncing all
a laugh omatic. >> the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own now we have them in place because of congress, they say the military option is on the table but not being viewed as credible so they stopped viewing nuclear weapons. >> how do you do it so quickly? you both saw benjamin netanyahu. >> we can debate the time line. whether it's that short of time or longer. i agree it's probably longer. number two, thank heavens we had these sanctions in pla of tr opposition. >> oh, god. >> laura: this was odd. even learnt guys -- elevate left of center. found the constant smirking, smiling and constant interrupting off-putting. in your face debate strategy didn't wear so well and perhaps distracted from some of the stronger substantive points. speaking of substance, joe biden told a number of big whoppers last night but i'm going to stick to three of them. first, on why there wasn't adequate security in place on 9/11 in benghazi. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there we did not know they wanted more security there. by the way, at
the same position before the withdrawal which was, we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a agreement to make sure we secure our game. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a force as agreement because they failed to get one. that is what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. for what they've done for us. including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. and with respect to afghan tan, the 2014 deadline, we agreed with the 2014 transition am but what we also want to do is make sure we're not protect ing weakness abroad. and that's what is happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself. but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which is making the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the mi
group. for florida, among likely voters, romney, 49%. obama, 46%. same group, arg, in new hampshire, romney, 50%. obama, 46%. again, among likely voters. both of those polls obviously well within the sampling error. a statistical dead heat, but both of the polls showing romney having momentum in the states after the first debate. we have seen that across a few polls, so the arizona poll, interesting and definitely defies the trend we have seen in other polls in other states. >> florida, remarkable numbers there. arizona, what about the rest of the country? >> the rest of the country, i mean, again, we have seen some tightening, some movement towards romney. you know, this poll position can be a little trucky. some polls show wider margins, different spreads than others, but we have definitely seen overall, predominantly, a momentum toward mitt romney after the first debate performance which underscores president obama going into the second debate, he has to do a lot better. he admitted he didn't do as well as he hoped to do. >> we'll see what happens on tuesday. the pressure is on.
house and it's ringing. >> hillary clinton's consultants used the same theme to attack barack obama. >> who do you want answering the phone? >> in this case it was barack obama, because he answered the red phone at 3:00 in the morning. said, gary heart answered the red phone at 2:00 in the morning. did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> today's ads are more likely to be direct attacks. >> barack obama, what a disappointment. >> americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing states, they now run all the time. >> if you're sick of hearing me approve this message, believe me so am i. >> i'm barack obama. >> i'm mitt romney. >> a proved this message. >> however most of you won't see those messages. you've been excluded. >> political parties spend millions trying to persuade you to vote for their candidate, but there's more to it than just convincing you. first they obsess about whether you are worth conncing. >> the whole art of politics in presidential blocks particularly is to target those people who are with y at the beginning and leave them alone until
to remember this today. barack obama and joe biden are absolutely, positively firmly committed to ensuring that our daughters and my granddaughter's have the exact same rights and opportunities to control their lives as my sons and my grandson's. [cheers and applause] the exact same right! make no mistake about that! these guys have a social policy out of the 1950's. folks, the american people have been through an awful lot the last four years as a consequence of this great recession. but like always, the american people did not give up. they got up in the american people did not lose faith. they bought back. folks, there is no quit in america. there is no quit in america. there never has been. and i have never seen two candidates in the highest office in the land were more negative about this country and its prospects than the people who we are running against. all you hear from them is talk about a culture of dependency, america in decline. you know, i don't and -- i don't recognize the country they talk about. i don't. not from where i come from, not where you come from. i don't see ame
be romney up by four and obama down by three at the very same time? newly minted phd economist david rothschild works at microsoft research in manhattan. rothschild looks at economic models, state polls and markets. his currently gives obama a 65% chance to win. >> i never sweat too much about any individual poll because there's too much noise. >> reporter: too much noise meaning... >> too much movement. >> reporter: take the so-called bumps - after a vice- presidential pick, or a convention. or take the first presidential debate. say you're a democrat, the morning after. a pollster calls you, you dont want anything to do with it, you're upset, you hang up tha phe. they call another guy, the exact same demographics as you because they're trying to fill some sort of demographic hole or whatnot, he's a republican, hes stoked. the same person on paper looks like he switched to republican but what happened really is that republicans want to talk that day versus a democrat who is like, i'm not even answering the phone. i'm in a bad mood, obama screwed up last night. >> reporter: between p
this margin of error, yes. >> reporter: as it turns out, that's about the same margin of error as for the second major source of presidential predictions, the polls. >> in 2008, we polled in a bunch of swing states, we got within three points of president obama's actual margin-- ohio, pennsylvania, florida, colorado, wisconsin. >> who do you think would do a better job on the economy, mitt romney or barack obama? >> reporter: on october 7, quinnipiac surveyed voters in three of this election's swing states: colorado, wisconsin and virginia. >> your telephone number was randomly generated by a computer, and i need to pick someone at random from your household to participate in this survey. >> reporter: to make sure they're polling a scientific sample of likely voters, these callers use random digit dialing of land lines and cell phones. but that's just for starters, says doug schwartz. >> when we call a household, we don't automatically speak to whoever picks up the phone, because they tend to be women. we speak to whoever has the next birthday in the household. we also call ove
the year before. all the obama is offering is more of the same. we have a big choice to make. do we want more stagnation that fosters dependency or do we want a growing economy that creates opportunities and jobs? [applause] in a nutshell, we need leadership. look at the guy over my shoulder right here. [applause] if you look at this man's life story, one word comes to mind. leader. this is a man who turned around the olympics, turned around struggling businesses. by the way, being successful in business is a of thing. there is nothing wrong with that. we want more people to be successful. we want more of you to have prosperity with jobs with higher take-home pay. we want people to grow. when america has a jobs crisis, it would be nice to have a job creator in the white house. this is a man who has proven to get things done. when he was governor of massachusetts, he cut taxes 19 times. he balanced the budget without raising taxes. unemployment went down. household income went up. this is a man who knows how to turn things around. after getting the runaround for itr years, don't you think
trunk under the obama--shrunk under the obama administration. i'm going to ask each of you the same question. who won the debate and will it matter. >> i think joe biden clearly won the debate. you can gauge that by the other side complaining by the style issues and not going to the substance. i think it will be merged in the polling data with whatever happens on tuesday in the presidential. but i think they've started a theme. if the president kind of continues in biden's direction it will merge together, and you'll start to see polling data to support that it was a very good debate for the democrats. >> michael: thomas frank. >> i would say biden won on issue but ryan won on decorum. one thing that biden did that i really liked when he would start on those grand rhetorical flights about the wonders of liberalism and the middle class he tend to wander off but those were inspiring. if barack obama could talk that way, they would have this thing in the bag. >> michael: indeed, they would. i think a lot of people were watching it that way. guys, he had a great time. errol louis and th
for the class warfare tactics to 1 million could be a way to give obama a symbolic victory, albeit a symbolic one that at the same time allows republicans to claim that they got something out of the deal. who really knows? but keep in mind, when bill clinton first put in the millionaires surtax back in 1993, it asn't a millionaire. it was rig about the $350,000.11 level. we have always had this very strange definition of manipulation in washington. >> we have. the point i raised with dick durbin last night, on whether there was a shift going on there, i want you to react to that. >> the position of the administration, which biden said, turning to paul ryan, why won't you at least let us preserve the middle class tax cuts for thos making under $250,000. >> is a million in new strategy now? >> there are several different illustrations. >> is not talking about the change of administration? >> i don't think so. >> i am not great at reading poker faces or the lack thereof. but maybe there is nothing sinister going on, but obviously they are not reading from the same choir book. >> again, i actuall
of offering more of the same. romney will face off with president obama next tuesday in long island new york for their second presidential debate. >>> president obama spent the evening in washington, d.c. where he joined three winners of a campaign contest. the prize stems from an effort to boost online contributions for the president's campaign. >>> and coming up in 10 minutes, why opponents of california's prop 32 say the way it's written makes the proposition unfair. >>> police in sonoma are looking for a man they said exposed himself at two grocery stores just minutes apart. this is a surveillance picture of the man. police say he went inside a safeway store two weeks ago and exposed himself the to a female shopper. they say he then went across the street to sonoma market and exposed himself to a female employee there. the man fled and officers were unable to find him. >>> together is proving to be a -- october is proving to be a recordbreaking month for b.a.r.t. that makes for the fifth busiest day ever. tuesday and wednesday were also among the top ten busiest days for b.a.r.t. last
, romney goes home and goes under lock to get ready for the second presidential debate and the same for president obama, randi. because he is going to williamsburg, virginia, but he is not going there to campaign in the crucial state, but he is doing basically debate prep between now and tuesday. here is the thing about tuesday's debate, because it is different from the presidential debate, and that was a week and a half ago in denver. this is a town hall for mamat a different feel from the questions of the audience, and the monitor is our own candy crowley and a lot at stake coming up on tuesday night at hofstra university in new york. randi? >> yes, a whole different energy as well, which the candidates will feed off of with the town hall feel, but we are going to be talking a little bit about florida later on in the show this morning, paul. certainly one of the big swing states. do you have any new numbers on the race by the way? >> i do. this is the cnn poll of polls. we took the three polls that were conducted after that first presidential debate in florida and among the likely
tax and cut the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. on the other hand president obama would keep tax rates the same for those making less than $250,000. he'd also raise the top two tax brackets to 36% and 39.6% and he has supported the buffet rule. he'd restore the estate tax but lower the corporate tax rate to 28% from 35%. so the choice is yours, undecided voter. but i see a clear distinction with one candidate supporting the rich, the other the middle and working class. now, on to a sliver of life that many see as only affecting one portion of the electorate but it's an issue that often divides us as a nation. number 8, abortion. with romney this gets a bit tricky. you see, in 1994 and 2020 he said he supported roe v. wade although he personally opposed it. in his 2008 presidential run he opposed it except in the case of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life and in 2012 he wants the supreme court to overturn roe v. wade. then on tuesday he said this. there's no legislation regarding in regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> i actu
she wanted. can you imagine if katie couric had exhibited the same deal with president obama? imagine that she spent a full day with him and asked him some questions like how many soldiers are there in a battalion? after some stammering, k.t. not katie could have followed up, that you are asking this country to make a commander in chief, you have no idea how many men are in a bit -- battalion? i'm sure john mccain does. but katie couric sisterhood only applies to liberal women. when palen did get the nomination, you would've thought that katie couric, barbara walters, diane sawyer, and the pack of shrill shrew is on "the view", okay, elizabeth doesn't count, but they said that sarah palin was every liberal woman's worst nightmare. they hate them because they don't comport to the official liberal version of womanhood. if only these mouthy women would just go away. luckily for us, they are not going anywhere. jericho. [applause] the south, the racist rebels and rednecks. in 1767, the mason-dixon line has served marketplace where the northlands in the south begins. there is a more accura
to have the same strategy, which senator obama said wouldn't work, couldn't work, still fails to admit that he was wrong about iraq. he still will not admit that he was wrong about the strategy of the surge in iraq, and that's the same kind of strategy of go out and secure and hold and allow people to live normal lives. and once they feel secure, then they lead normal, social, economic, political lives, the same thing that's happening in iraq today. so i have confidence that gen. petraeus, working with the pakistanis, working with the afghans, doing the same job that he did in iraq, will again. we will succeed and we will bring our troops home with honor and victory and not in defeat. >> senator mccain, this question is for you from the internet. it's from alden in hewitt, texas. how can we apply pressure to russia for humanitarian issues in an effective manner without starting another cold war? >> first of all, as i say, i don't think that -- we're not going to have another cold war with russia. but have no doubt that russia's behavior is certainly outside the norms of behavior that w
pushed by the same guys and it's basically they take whatever obama is doing and they make it slightly more truck u length. so we'll do something more active in syria or with iran. >> stronger. >> but there are about as many details as there are in their tax numbers. there's no details. and so what -- so they have this preposterous contraption about leaving afghanistan, of course it makes no sense. but they were trying to find desperate distinction from the policy that's in place, even if it's meaningless and it makes them look stupid. i don't think ryan has the knowledge, by the way, neither does romney, he has absolutely no foreign policy experience or background and said almost nothing about foreign policy until this entire campaign until he made that wonderful trip to london and insulted our closest ally. >> yeah. frank rich, "new york magazine"'s editor at large. >> we've got more ahead. stay tuned. . >>> we want to bring you more details about tonight's breaking news of that gun shot fired at the obama's campaign office. a gun shot was fired when the offices were occupied. earlie
double checked this, those very same swing states hold 146 electoral votes and obama won them four years ago. so boy, he's behind on his numbers there on the swing states, isn't he? >> look, we know this is going to be a big election. this is really going to come down to turnout. and when we look just in the state of ohio right now, 20% of ohio voters have already voted through the early vote process. two-thirds have gone to president obama. obama has a strong ground game. the obama for america and the dnc has been building on this ground game for the last four years. and so i'm not concerned about the turnout when it comes it a base election. >> gregg: i want to go live to lebanon, ohio. thanks so much to both of you. let's listen in now because rob portman, who is very popular in ohio and has been preparing governor romney, at least in his first debate, is speaking about the governor. let's listen in. >> everything you possibly can in the next 24 days to insure that this man can be the next president of the united states! [ cheers and applause ] we can not afford another four years of
: president bush ultimately won re-election, of course, the same result president obama is hoping for. now for fans of former president bill clinton and/or the boss bruce springsteen, you might want to head to the parma, ohio, area this tuesday. those two will headline a rally for president obama. we're told the admission will be free. >> ron mott, thanks very much. >>> let's get a check of the other top stories of the day. tom is at the news desk. >> we begin with some dramatic video from colorado. it shows what used to be a single family home completely destroyed by what officials believe was a natural gas explosion. a woman and four children were hurt, but luckily their injuries were nonlife threatening. the children were able to get out on their own but the mom had to be pulled to safety. several surrounding houses have been declared uninhabitable. >>> a los angeles homeowner got an unexpected visit from the lapd. an lapd patrol call not only ended up in the front yard of a home but also on top of another car after it crashed into a fence. the three officers inside were taken to the ho
not use that. he said mularkey which is another way of saying the same thing. i think they will turn off a lot of independents if they keep pushing this lier and dishonesty lying. >> the governor of pennsylvania said, instead of just going on attack, what obama really needs in the next two debates is to actually tell people what he's going to do in a second term. >> exactly. >> to say why this next four years is actually going to make your life better than the last four years. >> right. liar doesn't do that. look, liar is a cheap and easy way out of things and railroad disgusting sometimes, but its in apparently weak. you look like the weaker party. remember stop doyle, stop lying about my record, i worked in the white house with george bush. >> yeah, that was effective. >> bush lied, people died. we had liars thrown at us all the time and bush still got his war funded. he inherently makes you look week. it's not just the harshness, i think people tune that out. >> doesn't romney have to be prepared somehow to do more than what he did the first time? i thought he did an effect i have job
